Bring Co-op to your front door

Big Bag Option


  • 50g vegetarian hard cheese, finely grated
  • 1 medium head broccoli
  • Co-op vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 Co-op British free range egg
  • 150g Co-op plain white flour
  • 2 Co-op sesame seeded burger buns
  • Co-op wild rocket, hot sauce and sliced red onion, to serve

For the basil mayo

  • 30g Co-op reduced fat mayonnaise
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • Handful basil leaves, plus extra to serve
  • Juice and zest of ½ lemon


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas 6
  2. On a lined baking tray, pile the hard cheese into two small mounds and bake for 5-7 mins, until flattened out and bubbling
  3. Leave to cool completely
  4. Cut two steaks by slicing vertically through the centre of the broccoli, each about 1.5cm thick
  5. Cut the rest into smaller florets
  6. Heat the oil in a medium pan to 180˚C (a small piece of bread should turn golden in 15 seconds)
  7. Meanwhile, whizz all the ingredients for the mayo together in a small food processor, then season
  8. Whisk the egg in a small bowl with the flour and 200ml ice-cold water until combined
  9. Coat the broccoli steaks in the batter and let any excess drip off, before frying for 4-5 mins, turning halfway, until lightly golden and tender in the centre
  10. Drain well and season
  11. Repeat with the broccoli florets, frying for 2-3 mins, and then finally with the extra basil, for 1-2 mins, until crisp
  12. Toast the burger buns and spread the bases with basil mayo
  13. Add a handful of rocket, then top with the broccoli steaks, florets and crispy basil and cauli leaves (if using)
  14. Drizzle with hot sauce, before topping with a cheese crisp, some red onion and the bun lid
